Shadowy Deals of Biscoe Management

This is our humble submission about the serious nature of financial misappropriation and abuse of power by the management of Tyndale Biscoe and Mallinson schools. As has been already made public through a white paper at we want in-depth inquiry about two important matters:

1.     Illegal construction of Kashmir Valley School, Humhama: This school has been constructed illegally on orchard land and despite clear government refusal for the building permission, we want to ask you how has TBME Society been allowed to build the school? As can be seen from the documents at the government has already ordered inquiry into the illegal grant of permission by some SMC officials to the building of the school. We want to ask when so many commercial buildings have been sealed in recent days why no action should be taken against Parwez Samuel Kaul and SMC officials who built this building illegally?

2.     Embezzlement of government and other donor compensation money for the re-construction of Tyndale Biscoe branch school at Shajimarg Tangmarg. We have produced proof at that Parwez Kaul has received Rs One crore compensation from J&K government from the plan fund (See relevant document at to rebuild the school. Moreover Parwez Kaul had launched appeal to foreign donors and huge funds have been raised for the school. The government of J&K as per the official letter had made it clear that the second installment of Rs 75 lakhs will be issued only after spending proof of the first installment of Rs 25 lakh. Subsequently, the second installment was also released with the condition that if some money is saved in construction process that must be returned to J&K government 

As can be seen from the attached photo taken on 15 November, 2013, it is hard to believe that Rs one crore and other donation money has been spent on the building. In fact all that exists there today are some barracks and small building, that acts as a school.

We appeal Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA), Federation Chamber of Industries Kashmir (FCIK), Kashmir Chamber of Commerce & Industries (KCCI) and other bodies of J&K that if J&K state is going through a financial crunch, how can the state afford to lose its money like this. We want you and media to raise its voice on this.

Thanking you
